Hello Everyone!, 

We hope that your semester is off to a great start and that you are staying healthy. Hopefully you were able to participate in the virtual conference and enjoyed the sessions. It was great seeing some of you at the GSIC’s Virtual Social Hour. During the event we got to know other graduate students and even a few things about Crofton, Kentucky. We look forward to next year’s conference in Baltimore, themed Bridging Research and Practice

As we build up to next year’s conference theme, we encourage you to participate in this academic year’s Virtual Brown Bag Series. Beginning in October, we will continue to provide graduate students with access to talks on innovative methodologies and experiences in educational measurement. Additionally, we will incorporate current graduate students to lead sessions focusing on topics spanning developing and getting connected to research, dissertation experiences, internships, and more. 

If you have requests or suggestions for this year’s Virtual Brown Bag Series you can contact GSIC via our facebook page ( ) or email the co-chairs at the addresses below.

We look forward to working with you this year!
